At the second board there was a slight improvement.
Reading Bonds advanced X per cent; Harlem 1; Farmers'

morning. Long Island fell off X per cent. The transactions
at both boards wore to some extent. It is with
the greatest difficulty present prices are sustained. 11
will be observed on reference to the daily sales, that quotations
for the same stock will advance one day and fall

There are no liabilities of the company fulling due until
1850. and the income of Iho road will not only net
enough to meet the payments then, but good dividends
can in tho meantime be declared, should the board of
directors deem it good policy to make them. Should the
receipts of the remaining six months of the fiscal year
increase at the rate realized during the past six, the
gross Income of the company for the year ending Nov.
30. 1847, will not fall much short of $2,300,000, being an
increase of $350,000 on those of last year, equal to about
eighteen per cent.

There are groat complaints among the commercial
classes ol'New Orleans, relative to thu manner In which
the government regulates it payments at that point. It
"H"?" "?> nmi wry vi me i reusury sends drafts
drawn by the Treasurer. of the luited Slates on New
York and boston, in sum* of one hundred thousand
dollars each, to bo negocialed iu th? New Orleans market.
where they arc disposed of at a discount of two and
two and a half per cent In addition to this uil pay.
inoi)la on the part of the government, are made in bill*
on Washington, which are paid by drafts on New York.
Considerable curiosity bus been excited in Now Orleans
to learn the cause of the great scarcity of treasury not< a in
i lint section of the country. They command a premium
at all points, and the emburrn-. merit and difficulties
created by the use of drafts would be obviated by the
appearance of these notes. The banks of New Orleans are
overloaded with northern exchange, some of them
having, it is represented, upwards of one million of dollars
to their credit in the northern cities, which they are
unwilling to realise by drawing at the preseut discount
'I heir unwillingness to iucruaac the amount and their
iuabiiily to do so. compels them to restrict their facilities,
and a great deal of embarrassment is produced in
the moaey market of that city.
Thereappoars to be something wrong iu the tlnanciul
movements of the government. S. long as it has fuuds
at command, they can place them at proper points upon
much better terms than appears to hare been submitted
to. The lo n recently made for $ H,000,000 is to be paid
asfii't us the wants of the government may require, and
we do not see the policy of the government standing a
shave of two and a half pur cent, when it can comuiand
the money at much more reasonable rales. New Orleans
is the principal point of expenditure of money to
carry on the war, and the amount on deposit there to the
credit, of the government is less than iu either of the
three great northern cities.

A comparison of these figures will iliow the condition
of tho city and country banks of thi? State in a very
strong light. The paper issues of the country banks, in
proportion to thu amount of specie on hand, was as
seventeen to one, while tho paper issues of the city
banks, In proportion to tho amount of specie, was as one
to one and a half. Our city banks derive no benefit
from their circulation. It is oonfined principally to the
city, uud is returned upon them almost in full every day.
The issues of our country banks, and those of bauks out
cf the State, enter largely into circulation in this oity
through the Influence of the difference in value, compared
with thu issues of our city banks. The discount
upon uueurrent money, actually glees these bills circu- j
lation to the exclusion of those of our local banks. The
par redemption law would remedy this evil, and we have
uo doubt it ultimately will be carried through thu Legislature.

than buyers on 'change. We report sales of 1000 bbk,
chiefly Ohio and Michigan brands.at $ti 60a6 87>i. Wheat

Sales of 0000 bushels of Ohio and Indiana were made at

oliue; the highest quotation for yellow was 03c; buyers
generally offered a lower figure, while some holdera demanded
a higher price. There was some better enquiry
for pork, and small sales made at full prioes. Canal boats,
with vessels generally, have become more plenty, and
freights have a downward tendency.

departure of the twelve month's volunteers 1 bar#
stated in u former letter that ample dispositions had
been made by the War Ix-partmant to aupply the place
of those wboae term* would expire, Such dispositions
have been made, but on the calculation that the volunteer*
would remain in the eervloe until the actual expiration
of their aoveral term*. Both (Jeneral Taylor and
lienural Scott have put a different construction on ths
law of Congrats authorising the organisation of the volunteer
force. They have discharged the men from the
camp at such periods aa to enable them to reach the
United States before the expiration of their term of service.
This is an erroneous construction. The law of Congress
contemplated an actual service of twelve months.
If instead of its present location, the seat of war were
California under this construction, the twelve months'
men would give but six months' service, for the remaining
six mouths would be barely sufficient to ensure their
arrival home before the expiration of their term of i?rvlco.
<ieneral Jackson compelled the militia to serve
twenty clear days after the expiration of their term, and
those who attempted to construe the law for themselves,
by leaving at the actual expiration of their term, he shot
a* deserter* Hut the tw > G nurals are uot to blame. for
tlui rase I* a new onn. The volunteer* or militia of the
I nited States have never before been eug;vg*d lighting
on a foreign foil, anil eonneiiuently the oi.-ei has never
come up for decision.
J J (Oi Dernl Scott may, probably, puth on in ponton to
j I'uebla before the arrival of reinforcement*, but in thie
1 lin will be guided by circuiustaucc* If there be a road
from Jalapu to Orizablu, ho will stud a force to attaok
Santa Anuu at the latter plaee. aa If there be ?uch
u rout, the Mexican general might barra** General
j Scott'* rear, as he threatened, should the latter advance
with hi* diminished force on I'uebla. Dut the
! delay to hi* ndvunce cannot last longer than ten dny* or
j a fortnight, a* the deficiency caused by the departure of
the volunteer* will be more than covered by General
I'c&rcu'* and Ueneral Cadwullador's brigade* These brU
guiles have, in all probability, arrived before this time.
In addition to the?o troops, many more now on the way,
will bo despatched as soon a* possible to reinforce General
Scott, ani he i* already, doubtless, in a condition to
march on the capital.
The marines are not intended, as has been erroneously
stated, for the occupation ot the isthmus of Tehuautepec.
They will co-operate Immediately with General
I see it stated that Mr. Trlst. on his arrival at Vara
Cruz, had a long and mysterious conference with Commodore
i'erry, und sage calculations nru made as to th?
result of his communication with General Scott. Tha

J1 ffar of lilooil and a War of Words?ji Word or
two about both Wars?The Intelligencer and the Unio
? Gen. Taylor and the Presidency.
Anybody who imagines that wo are only engaged at
this time iu one war is mistaken. We have not ouly
the war with Mexico, hut the was between the National
Intelligencer and the Union. In tho Mexican war. tha
main articles employed are powder and shot?in the organic
editorial war. the means are steam nrn?.. ? ><! ? -
per. Ill tliu Mexican war. a great deal'of blood is shed
?hi this paper war. there U a corresponding shedding of
ink. and no bones broken. The Mexican war lias deteriorated
into the guerilla system. and Father Rltohio
hue thin morning proclaimed the same system of hush
fighting with u old Jo,'' or. as the Congolese mandolin
has it:?
, " Old Jo a kirkin' up behind and befo',
'And old Tom a kickin' up behind old Jo.''
And yet we do trust and buliero that uuitlier the war
with Mexico nor this war of words bctweun two beilieos*
political agitutors, diverse, converse and reverse lu
everything, will end in a dissolution of the Union, proTided
always that a saving discretion be exercised In
the settlement of the foreigu war and the domestic wax.
The fact is, it is hard to choose between the manner in
which Father llktcliie lias sustained the Administration in
this war. or tln> stylu in which Mr. liales has opposed it;
and we doubt whether the hxerutlve hua been most au
noyed at the lack of fearless intrepidity, mixed with a
saving discretion. in the conduct of the Union, or at the
entire absence of a redeeming conciliation on the part of
the Intotligencor.
A weak point in the Union i? the exceeding perplexity
into which its ancient oracle has haun thrown, with respect
to the prnjet of running Oen Taylor for the next
Presidency. Now there is no earthly advantage to >m?
gained by denouncing the inconsistency of the wbtgs In
riiuulug a military hero, as they, or tnauy of them, propose.
But if the frequent complaints of the Executive
paper be intended to deter the country democratic press
from joining in the "huzzas" to old llougb and Tough,
there may be souie method in this madness; for we rather
suppose it will bo perfect madness to attempt to resist
j tho current in favor of Taylor, it the old chap is fairly
thrown out into the stream of tho next Presidential
Kor the present it is idle to be in any perplexity on this
subject. VVe know uot what the war may yet bring forth
?nor how It may eud?nor when it will eud?nor whera
it will end. Wo know not what changes in the whole
face of things, foreign and domestic, warlike, diplomatic,
pacltic. and political, the next I ongress may effect.
Its action will certainly put a new phase upon our affairs
with Mexico, and the affairs of the next Presidency
in very many respects, and it may oompletsly sot aalda
all present calculations.
The better way for the Union would bo to do as the
Motional Intellifrncer is doing, in reference to tho proposed
nomination of Uen. Taylor, by many of tho nountry
whig prossei. and by one or two in the cities, and be
iii! ocraiiional democratic paper ?and that la, to ray no
